GBI Racing Ambassador and former leading jockey, Hayley Turner, gives her expert insight on Wednesday's Racing

3.05 (10:05AM ET) – Queen Mary Stakes (Group 2)
I am going with another of Clive Cox’s two year-olds here. He won very well on debut at Bath in May by six lengths. The form of the race has worked out really well and he should run a very good race.
3.40 (10:40AM ET) – Duke Of Cambridge Stakes (Group 2)
Chris Wall's really progressive horse is improving with every run, having won her last two outings at Newmarket and Lingfield. She will love the ground and is a much stronger four-year-old this year having shown consistent improvement.
4.20 (11:20AM ET) – Prince Of Wales Stakes (Group 1)
JACK HOBBS – Bet of the day
I'm really looking forward to seeing him run in blinkers again after winning the Dubai Sheema Classic at Meydan in March. I’m confident he will be a different horse with them on. I also think Decorated Knight is a good each-way bet. He's won two Group 1 races this year and will love the ground.
5.00 (12:00PM ET) – Royal Hunt Cup (Heritage Handicap)
He has won on his last two outings, including the Victoria Cup at Ascot in May. I am confident he will stay the extra furlong, given he has won over a mile a couple of times. He also likes a big field with a strong pace so this should suit. I also think Yuften is a big price in the race.
